Jay Cutler criticized by Bears teammate for yelling

It's one thing for outsiders to criticize Jay Cutler for how he berated his left tackle during the team's loss to the Packers in Week 2. It's part of the media game.

It's a lot more eye-opening when one of his own teammates takes Cutler to task.

"Is it unfair to criticize Jay right now? Shoot, it's unfair for him to be like that toward J'Marcus," cornerback D.J. Moore said Monday via the Chicago Tribune. "In every game in every sport, there's always somebody who has a tough day. For you to come off on the sideline, once you holler at him it makes it seem like (Webb) is the only reason."

Moore, like Cutler, went to Vanderbilt. But he was not feeling the Commodore love Monday.

"I don't talk to (Cutler). But if I was J'Marcus, shoot ... it wouldn't have went down like that. You just can't ... then when (Cutler) shoved him stuff, man. I don't know.

"I don't feel for Cut. He knows what he was doing. I don't think you do that. I think if you have a problem with (Webb), maybe do that in the locker room or something. It's like bad-mouthing someone in the media. It's just weird."

Cutler was asked about Moore's words Monday, but declined to comment according to Vaughn McClure. Bears coach Lovie Smith, surely wanting to avoid a controversy, expressed no concern. There were not-so-quiet whispers Cutler wasn't well-liked in Denver by his teammates. Former Bears teammate Adewale Ogunleye recently took him task.

This is all part of the reason we like having Cutler in the NFL. The guy is never boring.
